HARVEST Begins this Sunday

Sunday, September 22 – Wednesday, September 25
In 2019 Edmond’s First focused on four fields connecting with the community and touching the lives of people through new ministries. What is Harvest? 

  • Open Fields: Serving those who have needs in mercy, compassion, and evangelism.
  • Plant Seeds: The Gospel is the seed and we go where the greatest needs are and begin to plant seeds of compassion, mercy, love, and gospel witness.
  • Seeds Grow: As the seeds begin to grow in a fertile field, the seeds begin to sprout and grow.
  • The Harvest: We bundle up where we are ministering and accomplishing this mission through our Connection Groups.

Invite a friend and plan to attend HARVEST all four nights with powerful music, preaching, and ministry every evening.

John’s Gospel is an invitation for you to find life and live it abundantly. When we encounter Jesus we find fulfillment, forgiveness, and freedom that only He can give. Edmond's First Baptist Church offers two Worship Services on Sunday mornings:

Friendship International

Thursdays | 9:15 AM - 11:30 AM | Henderson Hills
The Purpose of Friendship International is to meet the needs of international women in an expression of Christian love. We have women from more than 30 countries, many of whom have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Meeting once a week, we share God’s love as we teach five levels of English as a Second Language plus citizenship. It is never too late to join. Childcare is available for birth through pre-kindergarten.

“Go therefore into all the world making disciples of all nations . . . teaching them to observe all I have commanded you.”
